It's so hot outside. I mean H-O-T!
I made this delicious treat for us to cool down on the 4th of July.
1 cup water
1/2 cup sugar
In a saucepan, bring to boil.
1 pint strawberries
and continue to boil for 5 minutes.
Mash up sugar and fruit mixture (I left mine kind of chunky, but if you wanted a smoother consistency you could puree it).
Place mixture in a ice tray and let freeze for at least 3 hours.
When ice cubes are frozen just add to glass.
And then pour in your lemonade - or any other drink that grabs your fancy.
I used this recipe for the fresh-squeezed lemonade.
The ice cubes gradually melt down and add more strawberry goodness to your glass.
